When life presents you with a huge challenge, do you resent the well-meaning and encouraging words from people you know? If so, check in to see if you’ve actually felt your feelings yet. You may have skipped that step and gone straight into creating an identity out of your story. If it seems that others are minimizing the importance of what you’re going through, perhaps it’s you, who have ignored your feelings and the wisdom to be found in the experience. When feelings are felt, the desire to move into a more healthy perspective is the natural result.

Even resentment can teach you about yourself.
